Society Of Pilar

Who We Are

We the Pilar Fathers are members of the Society of Apostolic Life, whose very raison d’être consists in actively introducing Jesus to all peoples, and sharing his teachings considered as 'good news' for wholesome human and social life, through the witness of life, and their activities. The Society is 'Indian by birth', barely 129 years old, and counts about 456 and odd members. The Society of the Missionaries of St. Francis Xavier with its Mother House at Pilar Monastery in Pilar, Goa, as its principal seat, was one more effort of the indigenous clergy to spread and strengthen the Faith among the Christian and people of other faiths of the Archdiocese.
